    I have heard the same, Tuesday evening was what I was told.

    Note though that this is second hand information and so I won't guarantee it's correct.

    Any clue whether they said if this would be a Luncheon Circular or an Evening Circular (as what 'Tornado' did a few days ago)

    Cheers

    Since the turntable at Scarborough is available she would most likely run chimney first both ways.

    Looks like UofSA is about to be rescued from the Conington loop, maybe due to fire risk as there are delays to the North with a lineside fire.

    Loco had a problem with the brakes/lubrication system at Newark, and accordingly caused 8 lineside fires between Newark - Grantham, 1Z99 now reversing at Conington Loop having come from the north to pilot it south.
